What do you call a caveman that wanders around aimlessly?

A meander-thal.

Boise State finishes no. 23 in the final AP Poll

There is a bit to nitpick here. If you think Boise State is only the 6th-best G5 team... ehhhhh. I can kind of get what happened. Getting waxed in the Las Vegas Bowl doesn’t help matters. But I think an argument can be made the Broncos can get a bump.

Also: this is a touch of a follow up on the above ranking. Giving some thinking toward next year.

Coaches Poll: Broncos no. 22

This time ahead of Air Force.

I am not sure if I should be offended that Washington is in ‘others receiving votes’ category. Texas made the AP poll at 8-5. Neither poll thought the bowl was a good enough reason to include them. Whatever.

Speaking of rankings...

We might as well start on too-early rankings for next year! ESPN has the Broncos them ranked, and where will shock you! (No, not really.)

Ranking the Mountain West coaching jobs

There has been a ton of turnover for the Mountain West. Literally six new head coaches (so far?!) for next year. That is insane. Only one current head coach has any MW conference rings. And only three (all in the Mountain Division) have even made any title appearances. That is rough.
